Why does the Windows Settings app say that "Some of these settings are managed by your organisation"?

The Safe Surfer for Windows app blocks a small amount of Windows settings by default, so that we can provide the protected device user with a safer online experience. If you see a message in the Windows Settings app that "Some of these settings are managed by your organisation", it's possible that the Safe Surfer app is controlling these settings. For example, Safe Surfer blocks the Widgets feature by default.

If you want to reenable a Windows feature that the Safe Surfer app is blocking, you can change these settings inside the Safe Surfer app by entering your PIN (if you installed one) and clicking on the Settings cog icon at the upper-right corner of the Safe Surfer app window. Once you've changed the settings, you will need to restart the device for the changes to take effect.
